Library Journal Review

Cox, an Australian sex and relationships journalist and the author of Hot Sex (LJ 4/15/99), targets all stages of every erotosexual relationship: looking for a partner, dating, living together, and being married-with-kids, whether heterosexual, lesbian/ gay, young, or older. Surprisingly, she succeed reasonably well, delivering supportive and commonsense advice about finding a partner; dealing with disagreements; avoiding "love landmines," jealousy, and infidelity; recognizing bad choices in partners; and dealing with breakups. Her "twenty- to thirtysomething" writing style may put off some older or more conservative readers: in Cox's world, nearly everyone is into parties, nightlife, alcohol, and casual sex and becomes emotionally devastated and histrionic when dealing with infidelity and breakups. Despite the limited appeal of the styleDand the misleadingly oversexy titleDthe book's advice does hold up well for a broad readership. The main flaw is the lack of a list of recommended readings and resources. For larger public libraries, especially those with collections targeted to the earlier decades of adulthood.DMartha Cornog, Philadelphia (c) Copyright 2010.
